Deep Silver, the new owners of the Saints Row franchise have announced that Saints Row 4 will be hitting stores on 23rd August 2013.

Developed once again by Volition Inc, Saints Row 4 is the next installment in the over-the-top, open-world action-adventure franchise.

The story follows the Third Street Saints as per usual. In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. That’s certainly a big step for the Saints.

Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.

Players will be able to get their purple hands on alien weaponry and technology to retain control over the free world. We’ll be seeing the UFO return as a vehicle then. There are even out-of-this-world superpowers for you to master such as jumping over buildings or out sprinting a fast sports car.
